Just the other day, we were talking about the arid, empty, Tusken Raider-inhabited planet that is Star Wars movie news in February 2017 – it’s a bit of a wasteland out there. And right on cue, the universe has delivered some new Star Wars: The Last Jedi material for us to sink our teeth into. Specifically, it deals with a new spaceship, a certain cameo, and the nature of Finn’s mission in the film. If you want to know as little as possible about Rian Johnson‘s follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this is probably your cue to seek some other kind of movie news diversion. .

Last fall, there was a lot of buzz regarding whether or not Daniel Craig would eventually return to the role of James Bond. The actor was rather vocal about how exhausting the work on Spectre was, going so far as to say that he’d rather slash his wrists than do another James Bond movie at that time. Since then, he’s equated his answer to being the same he would give if someone asked him to run a marathon after just finishing another marathon, reiterating that he loves playing James Bond.
As of last year, Daniel Craig was still the first choice to play James Bond, according to the franchise executive producer, but that didn’t stop rumors from swirling about a possible replacement. One of those names was Tom Hardy, and in a recent interview he was hesitant to address any truth to those rumors simply because of his own personal philosophy. However, he had no problem putting forth his choice to direct a James Bond film: Christopher Nolan.

Back in 2015, /Film stopped being a movie site and started being a Mad Max: Fury Road fan site for a little while. But can you blame us? Our favorite movie of that year struck a chord with movie fans all over the world, managing to appeal to action movie junkies and cineastes alike with its inventive filmmaking, wild performances, and rich attention to theme and detail. It remains one of the best movies I’ve seen in a theater in the past decade. So yeah, we’d welcome another entry in the series…and so would star Tom Hardy, who says he’s just waiting for someone to call him.

If there was one thing that the big screen needed more of this year, it was Tom Hardy. The actor was all over the place in 2015 with Child 44, London Road, Legend, The Revenant and of course, Mad Max: Fury Road. The only way to get your fix of a new Tom Hardy performance this past year was in the third season of BBC series Peaky Blinders, available on Netflix right now, and one of his projects in 2017 has him reteaming with series creator Steven Knight.
Taboo is coming to FX in January and it features Tom Hardy getting down and dirty back in 1814. Hardy plays James Keziah Delaney, a man who has changed drastically from who he used to be after spending enough time in Africa for those from his hometown in London to presume that he’s dead. Now he’s back, and he’s quite the force to be reckoned with.

Taboo marks another collaboration between Steven Knight and actor Tom Hardy. The BBC and FX series follows up their work together on Peaky Blinders season two and Knight’s spellbinding second feature, Locke. The dark and atmospheric trailer for their series made it look unlike any show coming out. In Knight’s opinion, there hasn’t ever been a show quite like it.

The past couple of years have been pretty rough on Josh Trank. After his career got off to a spectacular start with 2012’s Chronicle, he flamed out with his sophomore effort, Fantastic Four, and seemingly did himself no favors by bad-mouthing his own movie. In between, he also picked up and then lost a Star Wars spinoff. Understandably, he’s spent most of 2016 laying low.
But now it sounds like he’s finally ready to get going on a new project again. Tom Hardy has just been set to star in Trank’s next movie, Fonzo, about legendary mobster Al Capone near the end of his life. Read More »
Gavin O’Connor has directed two movies that should’ve had bigger audiences. Miracle did respectably at the box office, but that inspiring drama still felt slightly overlooked the year it came out. O’Connor’s 2011 film, Warrior, opened to positive reviews but a weak opening at the box office. The movie, which reportedly cost $25 million, made under $14 million in the States. It was a shame seeing a movie that sincere not connect, but the film has found some fans over the years. Maybe not enough fans to make a Warrior 2 a reality, but that’s not stopping O’Connor from considering a sequel.
Below, read what O’Connor had to say about a Warrior sequel.
